The Virginia Veterans Foundation is the official 501c3 foundation for the VFW Department of Virginia. Its mission is to support the programs and operations of the Department and to support the military, veterans of the military, and their families.
In 2019, the foundation spent over $50,000 in support of its mission. This includes $15,000 to support VFW grants for the U.S. Coast Guard who did not get paid during a government shut down. 2020 saw the foundation spend nearly $100,000 on programs including grants for community service projects, Post home improvement, and nearly $30,000 in scholarships! The best part: No salaries are paid to anyone!
